Interesting Facts About Bazelgeuse

  • Bazelgeuse is a large nomadic Flying Wyvern that has been seen in a variety of environments.
  • Bazelgeuse is extremely hostile to other creatures, including hunters, and is known to attack first without a second thought. This natural aggression makes the monster extremely dangerous for elite hunters.
    • The Guild consider Bazelgeuse to be on the same level as monsters like Rajang and Deviljho. It is even considered to be Deviljho's rival.
    • Bazelgeuse isn't frightened by apex monsters like Rathalos, Diablos, Legiana, and Odogaron, in fact, is known to attack them when it encounters them.
  • Under Bazelgeuse's neck and tail are countless scales hanging down from them. These scales have a peculiar shape to them and will explode when detached from Bazelgeuse's body. These scales are made from body fluids produced in Bazelgeuse's fuse/explosive gland (Japanese 爆鱗竜の爆腺) and will explode when stimulated. The explosions can easily kill weaker creatures in a single blow, but can heavily damage larger ones.
    • If knocked down, or stunned, the scales will explode prematurely on its body, leaving it defenseless for a short period of time. However, the body fluids from its organs will produce more of them over a short period of time. It can take Bazelgeuse about a minute or less to regrow those scales.
    • From its explosive scales, Bazelgeuse is nicknamed the 'Explosive Scale Wyvern (Japanese 爆鱗竜).
  • While hunting, Bazelgeuse will cover an area in its scales before setting them off all at once to kill its prey. This allows Bazelgeuse to kill multiple prey items at once.
  • Despite its size, Bazelgeuse is a surprisingly a good flyer that has giant wings used to support it in the air.
  • The Research Commission has recently started studying Bazelgeuse in the New World. The Bazelgeuse seen in the New World seem to have evolved differently and found a unique way to survive there.
  • A Bazelgeuse's fuse and talons are compatible with the blast element.
  • Many of Bazelgeuse's materials are used for crafting equipment.
